In Yemen the Sunnis are fighting the Houti Shias, and their respective backers, Saudi Arabia and Iran are bashing each other. In Yemen the Separatists are fighting the Saudi backed Saana republic to split the country in two. The Yemen split is backed by the Gulf states of the United Emirate who are allies of the Saudis who demand one country. In Yemen El Kaida has bases which are occasionally being bombed by the Americans. In Yemen the Islamic State has a footing and is hated by everyone. In this glorious mix I only ask one question: when is the sweet Mr Putin going to make his entrance?
